Maybe we should have laws against murder, since, you know, criminals obey laws.
Also consider, several of the most grievous mass murders in this country were perpetrated by the government (Wounded Knee, Waco, and others). Another mass murder (3,000 dead) was committed by airliners. The Oklahoma City bombing used fertilizer. And extremists worldwide are finding mass murder with truck to be quite simple. The Boston marathon was attacked with pressure cookers. France was attacked by extremists wielding AK-47s. Apparently, they'd not heard France has laws against owning AK-47s, or surely they'd have turned them in and begged forgiveness.
You people are amazing. On one hand, you whine and cry and moan and beat your breast over police violence and white oppression. Then you whine and cry and moan and beat your breast and say only the police and government - you know, the evil oppressors - should have guns. Which is it, kids?
In the meantime, my non-violent self is sitting over here, armed to the teeth, and a threat to no one, except for paper on the 500 yard range, or some shitbag who might dare break into my house and threaten my family. But please, do continue to tell me how awful, how stupid, how barbaric, how unenlightened, how backward, how foolish I am, and know that with every petty insult, you only strengthen my resolve that "shall not be infringed" and "not one more compromise" are the beliefs I stand by.
America does not have a gun problem. America has a cultural problem. Most murders committed with firearms are committed by people who aren't allowed firearms to begin with. They pay others to purchase them in their place (who then go unpunished when caught), or they steal them. Suicides should not count - if a gun wasn't available, there are a myriad of other ways to remove one self. Gun owners have been proven, time and time and time again, statistically, to be among the most law-abiding citizens in this country. We are NOT the problem.
